My entry to the #LOWREZJAM and made with #Pico8, using a display of only 64x32 pixels and only 16 colours, is a new spin on an old classic!

(More was planned - such as music, sfx and an intro anim, but ran out of time!)

CONTROLS:

  • Arrows = Move player left/right/crouch
  • Z = Kick
  • X = Fire laser - when you get the gun at Level 3
    • (Hold for a few seconds and release to create a defence shield)
    • (Hold for longer to release a BLAST to destroy enemy shields)

FEATURES:

  • Endless number of levels* 
    • (Theoretically!)
  • Several classes of enemies to survive from:
    • Water tentaclesDon't linger too long next to the pool!
    • WormsIf they sting you, it's game over!
    • SoldiersThey will use all their skills to defeat you!
